I combined heart-centered sentiments with my love of sending cards and letters Sure, I enjoy the fast-paced, quick responses of email, texting and messaging like everyone else but nothing replaces the energy you get from a card or letter sent
snail mail. People will say snail is dead. I don't believe it.

I don't know one gal who isn't thrilled when a lovely envelope is popped through the mail slot or found in the mailbox.
You can almost hear the smiles forming on all those faces.

That fact that something as simple as a lovely handmade card can make someone feel happy or cherished or supported has a magical essence for me.
I want to be able to help facilitate the sharing, the excitement and that fantastic connection. Life is way too short to not share the bonds of kindness, gratitude and fun. Now all you need is a stamp :)

Lovely to meet you!!
Love and light, Lisa xo

Wonderful pins! I absolutely love ila and alice's products, they're so gorgeous and so well made! I bought these pins as a gift for my sister and I just know she's going to love them just as much as I do! Shipping was very fast and everything was packaged so beautifully and it was so lovely and exciting to get it in the mail! I love everything Lisa does and am a huge fan of hers, her products really are excellent!

About

Connecting women one word, one image, one stitch at a time

One day I realized that with all my art journaling and intention board making
I was healing myself with a wide mix of images, stories, historical
influences and symbolism. I was also using colour and the practice of
healing with colour to express my confusion and lack of direction. I was
trying to redefine who I was with the help of historical women, folklore,
Goddess imagery and lessons from those who travelled this planet long,
long ago before me. I was fascinated with their stories and their lives.
It occurred to me slowly that what I wanted and needed more than
anything to help me was what women now and all throughout
history have needed....connection.

Connection to each other, their tribes, our tribes and most importantly connections that help us heal and thrive. I realized that with the help of the images and the sense of belonging and connecting with all these stories helped me to feel less alone, less isolated, less fearful and more empowered. I wasn't as alone as I thought.

I slowly emerged into a place where I knew that what I wanted to do was help women connect with each other on a level that strikes in the heart centre. We women can be masters at sharing and saying I Love You! You Are Special! and all those good things but also sometimes fear, uncertainty or even shyness holds us back and we don't say the things we wish we could.Then we have days where all we want to say is You Rock! Thank You SOO Much! At the end of the day, women
are the great communicators but we all have different ways of communicating our feelings.

I knew that I wanted to share the messages that I wanted to say or hear because we
ALL have those desires. We are all connected in that way no matter where we are from. We all what to matter and we all want to be seen, heard, give and receive love. It is universal.

No matter the message, these cards come from conversations I have had with the people I care about and conversations I wish I could have. My artwork is full of ideas and thoughts that at some point I wanted to share, needed to say or wanted to hear for myself. We all want to connect with others who are like us. And, most importantly we like to give that back to those we care about the most.

So, to wrap this all up....I combined these sentiments with my love of sending cards, letters and post cards. I enjoy the fast paced, quick responses of email, texting and messaging like everyone else but nothing replaces the energy you get from a card or letter sent snail mail. People will say snail is dead. I don't believe it. I don't know one gal who isn't thrilled when a lovely little enveloped is popped through the mail slot or found in the mail box. You can almost hear the smiles forming on all those faces.

That fact that something as simple as a lovely handmade card can make someone feel happy cherished has a magical essence for me. I want to be able to help facilitate the sharing, the excitement and that fantastic connection. Life is way to short to not share the bonds of kindness, gratitude and fun.
Now all you need is a stamp :)
